Young Romance #164 - Alex Toth art

Young Romance #164

Young Romance v1 #164, 1970 - Two sisters search for their respective true loves, all the while discouraged by their over-protective mother. This second of two chapters focuses on the younger sibling, as her daydreams conflict with her realities. Though lacking an opening splash (like the previous issue), Alex Toth nonetheless produces a memorable piece. Page 6 stands out from the rest, using dramatic lighting to heighten the character's loneliness. Like the previous chapter, inker Dick Giordano does a similarly satisfactory job. This story was later reprinted in Young Love #114. Other artists in this DC bronze age romance comic include Vince Colletta. This is number 2 of 2 Young Romance issues with Toth art and/or covers (not including reprints). Find >this issue or more >Toth or >Young Romance issues on ebay.
